Students in the gifted program at Lehigh Acres Middle School were treated to ice cream floats on Tuesday as part of a gifted social.

For many, it was the first time they had tried root beer and the reactions were mixed.

"I like root beer," said Aeriana Hernandez.

Students solved brain teasers and mingled with gifted students in 6th, 7th and 8th grade. 

"I get to know more gifted people," said Makenna Jenkins who helped scoop up the floats along with Taylor Martin and Chloe Dice.
